「Official」Asian Anime, Manga, and Music Lounge - Page 7104

post #106546 of 126803

Alright, I just finished Serial Experiments Lain. The ending's a bit cliche (heck 1998), but in the end I understood a good bit of what SEL was about. I can't say it was the most enjoyable experience, but it certainly is one of the best anime I've ever watched.

It is the

-Greatest mind game I've ever experience; its all about connecting revelations and seeking the ultimate truth of the matter that is Serial Experiments Lain. You'll (you) go on a journey with Lain to find the ultimate truth behind the real world and the wired (its mutual; Lain's your best friend, but she gets to play Sherlock). Throw away everything you believe, since nothing in the anime reflects the actual world, as it should.

-Just as confusing as FLCL; the anime extends so deep at times, you'll find yourself forgetting what you just watched. It's good to keep a good layer of self-awareness when viewing.

-I need a break; Probably gonna read book and get a girlfriend or something.

 

A little advice from ANN

The latter may come closest to getting all of the puzzle pieces to fit, while also framing the series around La>in—whose metamorphosis from shy schoolgirl to terrifying electronic god is the human core that pushes the series from intriguing head-game to disturbing sci-fi masterpiece. But why choose just one? The series is all that and more. Here's my suggestion: Stay up 24 hours. At about midnight, juice yourself to the gills with caffeine pills. Open a nearby window so that the night sounds can come in, wrap yourself in a blanket and watch the whole thing from beginning to end. You won't know what to think. Exactly as you should.

No hard feelings, bro.

When?...since I started paying for Netflix and Amazon

 

If those sites have the series I want at the correct Hd resolution and subtitles, I will watch them there. 99% of the time, it fails that.

 

80% of the content on those sites in anime are dub. And or use SD footage, or are slightly modified versions of the anime etc.

 

I'm paying for those companies and service already. But ***** it if I am going to pay more for schiitty service.

 

Steam and Netflix have the philosophy that piracy is due to a service problem.....dayum right *******. $60 for a AAA video game with low replayability, or $200 for an anime box set, or video services with schiit service are the reasons I don't do more legit anime and new AAA games.

I recommend reading the LN Utsuro no Hako..

 

It caught me completely off guard by how deep it was

Yeah, honestly it was a good overall anime. I really enjoyed the change in pace from the usual magic girl/loli/hentai/high school dating stuff.


Interesting instrument, the sheng.

Traditionally, the sheng has been used as an accompaniment instrument for solo suona or dizi performances.

Huh. I like the dizi, but I've never heard of this instrument before.

That it was, that it was. 

 

I see that blond is the color of choice when dying one's hair... might as well go all the way to white :veryevil: Oh the good old days of swimming... chlorine would bleach my hair making it black to red/brown to light brown/blond to white. If you're gonna bother changing hair color, might as well exercise while doing it :D

 

Good lawd. That instrument.

That thing is at least as weird as this newly "discovered" instrument that da Vinci came up with 500 years ago:

Except swimming is boring as hell. It is boring enough when you do it yourself, it is just unbearable when you are watching it.

 

I don't really get sports anime or shows. Especially since I have been swimming competitively for such a long time, it is just odd.

post #106555 of 126803
But it's better than the usual magic girl/loli/hentai/high school dating stuff, which is pretty much every other show out there and I have absolutely no interest in those shows.

Whoops, I probably forgot or tl;dr'd over it, sorry! I see, seems there are quite a few HKers around here, lol.

Oh right, those stupid DRM filled chips. I'm not sure those are safe for online play, but who knows. It lets you play ISOs off a hard drive iirc.

Heh, well I still use CDs!
